Unmatched in its class, the Tohatsu 9.8 hp 4-stroke has set the standard in portable outboard power! This lightweight motor weights in at barely over the 90 lb mark and has undeniable characteristics of a true marine champion.

We pack a lot of punch for the buck in this truly unique outboard! In the 10 hp / 9.9 hp category, Tohatsu has once again proven itself the leader of the pack with this 9.8 hp 4-stroke.
